Chapters are grouped according to subject matter. The first group discusses theory; the second considers instrumentation and measurements, and procedures for analyzing and testing systems subjected to shock and vibration. Vibration that is induced by ground motion and fluid flow is considered next; then methods of controlling shock and vibration; followed by chapters on packaging engineering to prevent equipment from being damaged in transit; on the theory and practice of equipment design; and on the effects of shock and vibration on humans. New material includes computer techniques for solving problems, new instrumentation based on microchip technology, advances in analysis of data and models, application of finite element methods, and test criteria and specifications.

EVERYTHING ENGINEERS MUST KNOW ABOUT MECHANICAL SHOCK AND VIBRATION...IN ONE CONVENIENT REFERENCE!
Here is the classic work on shock and vibration--expanded and updated to incorporate the latest advances, theories, and materials--and the only book you'll ever need on the subject.
Written by a team of hands-on internationally recognized experts, HARRIS' SHOCK AND VIBRATION HANDBOOK logically covers three major subject areas:
* The basic theory of shock and vibration
* Measurement, testing, design, and control methodologies
* Practical applications of theory
This new Fifth Edition has been completely revised to provide coverage of critical topics such as:
* Application of computers to shock and vibration problems
* Recent advances in the analysis of vibration data
* The use of composite materials
* High-intensity sound-induced vibration
* Protection against injuries from shock and vibration
* Design of equipment for shock and vibration environments
* And much more!
Invaluable to engineers specializing in mechanical, aeronautical, acoustical, civil, electrical, and transportation engineering, HARRIS' SHOCK AND VIBRATION HANDBOOK is a valuable guide to the solution of shock and vibration problems.About the Author:
CYRIL M. HARRIS, one of the world's leading authorities on shock, vibration, and noise control, currently lectures at Columbia University where he is the Charles Batchelor Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering and Professor Emeritus of Architecture. Dr. Harris has received many honors for his scientific and engineering achievements, including membership in both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. He has been the recipient of the Gold Medal and the Sabine Medal of the Acoustical Society of America, the Franklin Medal of the Franklin Institute, the Gold Medal of the Audio Engineering Society, and the A.I.A. Medal of the American Institute of Architects.
He received his Ph.D. degree in Physics from M.I.T. and has been awarded honorary doctorates by Northwestern University and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Among books written or edited by Dr. Harris are the following McGraw-Hill publications: HANDBOOK OF ACOUSTICAL MEASUREMENTS AND NOISE CONTROL, Third Edition (1991); NOISE CONTROL IN BUILDINGS (1994); DICTIONARY OF ARCHITECTURE AND CONSTRUCTION, Third Edition (2000); and HANDBOOK OF UTILITIES AND SERVICES FOR BUILDINGS (1990.ALLAN G. PIERSOL is a professional engineer in private practice specializing in the analysis of and design for shock, vibration, and acoustical environments. He received a B.S. in engineering physics from the University of Illinois and an M.S. in engineering from UCLA, and is licensed in both mechanical and safety engineering. Mr. Piersol is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology, and a recipient of the latter organization's Irvin Vigness Memorial Award. He is the co-author with Julius S. Bendat of several books, including ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF CORRELATION AND SPECTRAL ANALYSIS and RANDOM DATA: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT PROCEDURES, as well as a contributor to numerous engineering handbooks. Mr. Piersol was previously a Principal Engineer at Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Inc., and an adjunct instructor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California.
